Research on Children, Youth and Families

Our Division brings a powerful interdisciplinary and collaborative approach to improving health care for children and adolescents. Division investigators work with the Community Health Outcomes Research Program in The Saban Research Institute of Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

The Division collaborates with a nationwide network of researchers, clinical scholars, public health officials and policymakers to conduct research closely tied to policy and practice.

Staff of our division work to showcase new research and programs that demonstrate promise in impacting children's well-being.

In addition, we translate research findings and their policy implications to a variety of audiences, including the scientific community, national, state and local policy makers, consumers, community organizations and other key stakeholders.

Research Projects

In an urban, densely populated area such as Los Angeles, there are numerous opportunities to reduce health disparities and address barriers to healthy living for children and adolescents.

Our researchers direct projects that aim to prevent illness and injury, and to reduce barriers to health care by conducting innovative research, implementing effective interventions, and work to ensure that all children and adolescents receive the high-quality healthcare that they need.
